Simple Black Bean Dip

Author Notes: This is a great last-minute recipe for unexpected guests as I almost always have these recipe ingredients on hand. There are never leftovers! I think I added balsamic vinegar and fresh orange juice to a basic bean dip recipe and this version was the keeper. This recipe can also be made ahead and kept refrigerated; can easily be doubled.JanetFL
